Product Description


technical comment

  • The funkiest of all Romanian bands are Mahala Rai Banda. This Bucharest-based band have mixed Funk and Latin flavours into furious brass groove and torn up stages across the world. In 2009, on their acclaimed album "Ghetto Blasters", Mahala Rai Banda cut "Balkan Reggae", a lovely, swinging instrumental that showed how Eastern cymbaloms, violins, accordions and trumpets could embrace a very Caribbean flavour.

    “Balkan Reggae” found Mahala Rai Banda paying homage to their soul brothers in Jamaica. In the year that Jamaica celebrated 50 years of independence MRB embraced their Jamaican musical brethren by inviting several top Dub remixers like Mad Professor, Jstar and Nick Manasseh to give their Romanian Reggae tune a sonic turbo charge.
